I decided to write this blog with those who do not speak or read Turkish in mind. This obviously does not mean that those who are perfectly adept in Turkish (or is Turkish) are not welcome!
The point however is that Turkey is a country which has an incredibly high paced and fluctuant agenda. I will try to use this page to bring to your attention the most salient issues and offer an alternative read to those that you might have come across.
Just so that you know where I am coming from, I am a Turkish/British dual national. I have to say that I feel more ‘at home’ in Turkey. Hence, following my undergraduate degree from the University of Brimigham in Political Science, I have relocated back to Turkey.
In the past, I’ve worked for the Turkish daily newspaper Radikal (less radical than it sounds – a centre/centre leftish newspaper) which is definitely one of the prominent papers. I also worked with the Turkey correspondent for the Austrian daily paper Der Standart and Financial Times Deutschland.
Currently, I am completing my MA in International Relations and Democratic Politics at the University of Westminster in London.
I will use this space to offer my own views on what is going on in Turkey. If you want to get in contact with me, please feel free.
